Of the 37 Bears to maintain a 3.3 grade point average or better, 21 were repeat honorees.
Junior Ashleigh Hartwig was named Skyline Conference Player of the Year for the second time in her career. Classmate Alexis Buchanan joins her on the First Team and sophomores Sierra Bedrin and Nicole Trani were named to the Second Team.
Junior Ashleigh Hartwig becomes the first All-Region First Team honoree in Bears history after setting new program single-season records in batting, slugging, and on-base percentage.
The Bears fell one game shy of a Skyline postseason appearance closing their 2021 campaign at 17-10 overall and in fifth place at 12-9.
Nicole Trani hit her league-leading sixth home run of the season and Vivian Tomovich knocked three hits on the afternoon but the Bears fell 14-1 and 7-0 to the Valiants on Saturday.
The Bears meet the Valiants for the first time in program history as they wrap up the 2021 regular season with Skyline Championship tournament aspirations.
The regular-season finale between the Bears and the Valiants will now be played at the SJC Outdoor Field Complex in Patchogue.
Trani had an impressive week at the plate assembled a .706 batting average (12-for-17), 1.471 slugging percentage, .737 on-base percentage, with three home runs.
Nicole Trani belted home runs in back-to-back at bats for the Skyline lead and Vanessa Quigley knocked four hits and drove in four runs on her Senior Day as the Bears defeated their sibling rivals for the first time since 2012 and picked up a key conference win as the playoff race heats up.
Nicole Trani launched her third HR of the season to move into a tie for the league lead and Ashleigh Hartwig saw her hitting streak snapped at 18 games as the Bears were handed a 5-2 and 6-4 setback by their sibling rivals on Saturday.
Tied for first in the conference standings, the Bears open the penultimate series of the regular season against their sibling rivals.
Ashleigh Hartwig extended her hitting streak to 17 games and moved into the Skyline batting lead (.603) and a tie for the lead in home runs (3) and RBI (30).
